Digital detox and happiness – putting ’smart’ back into phone #talk

Following advice I received from the shaman (bear with me), I did look at ways I could share what I learnt about happiness and mindfulness wider with the world. As a result, I am happy to report that I’ve been invited to be a speaker at the Focus Inside event which is an unusual, exciting one week pop-up in London aiming to experientially combine digital detox, mindfulness, mental health and art. What a combination.

I plan to talk about mindful use of devices which makes sense considering I am a marketer at a large mobile company and a blogger writing about happiness and mindfulness who recently went through a version of digital detox (I promise I will write a blog post on this in April). You would still need to pry my iPhone out of my hands and my phone is closer to me at night than my husband 🙂  but I did conquer some of the iDemons such as mindless scrolling, falling into content rabbit holes and what started to look like addiction.

The event is free to attend (some sessions require booking and nominal payment) so if you are in London on what I am hoping will be a beautiful spring Saturday of April 21st, come and say hello. The event programme can be found here, I am on a 2pm panel with some cool folks (how about the lady who created walk-in meditation studios for the City workers!). See you! 🙂
